If you want to turn it off and on, the power switch held down gives the option to mute all sounds.

I really want the capability to just make the entire phone volume lower (ringer, media, notifications) or higher by pushing the side button. This would be helpful when I am at work and have to go to meetings, or in places where the louder volume would be too loud.
My Blackberry used to do this. Not sure why I cant with the note 3
Download "Simple Sound Widget" from Play Store and then set it up for different sound profiles. It lets you set your phone to silent, meeting, loud and or normal. You determine what those volumns will be.
